Today’s world wouldn’t be a smaller place if people to people relationships were at a level as that of in the early twentieth century. Here we take a look at some of the benefits people search platforms have given us:
- Getting to know people better:
Imagine a scenario where people would randomly meet strangers and let them be strangers for the rest of their lives, without even having the requisite tools to dig deep and getting them to know on a personal level. On the forefront of “The world is quite smaller than what used to be in the early 1900s..” is the communication revolution championed by the advent of internet, long distance telecommunication facilities and a host of other communication revolutions. The cherry on the top is the opportunity to know about the random strangers we meet daily in our lives using the social engineering techniques we have inherited from our ancestors.
- Social Engineering Brought up to Gold Standard:
The art of Social Engineering is a reminder that humans have existed as communities since the time our long forgotten ancestors used to live in caves and hunt in packs. The communities of those eras were pretty small and the concept was materialized once the communities grew and became civilizations spanning decades and millennia. Since then the concept has grown leaps and bounds to define the level of interaction in order to get to know any random stranger on a personal level such that the bond stands the test of time. Maintaining people to people contact is the single most important thing for sustaining a society for ages to come.
- Growth of Communities:
Communities cannot prosper if they don’t venture beyond their area of dwellings, which in turn has revolutionized trade, currencies, businesses, technology, etc. These material and subjective wealth is however meaningless if people to people connections break down, separated by time zones, geographical distances and barriers, and other variables. For technologies, trade and commerce, knowledge, culture, etc. to spread and benefit all of humankind, there must be interaction on a global scale, the kind of which only people search platforms and other social media platforms can guarantee.
- Ushering in new forms of business opportunities:
People to people contact tends to generate and spread ideas, identify unique hurdles related to any projects, provide solutions, turn them into business opportunities, market them to global populations, adapt and develop to requirements of specific communities and take the technological revolution to the next level. This is how fixed landline telephone connections gave rise to wireless communication, used various bands of communication, increased the geographical area of communication, and finally revolutionized the speed and distances using the latest of optical fiber networks. All of these would not have been possible if people to people connections were given priority in the first place. Given that humans have tried to establish lines of communication ever since societies started to pop up in almost every geographical expanses of our planet, the world has truly become a much smaller place with every passing decade.
